I had a meal in this restaurant last Sat,(5th July 2014). The atmosphere in the restaurant was great, the service was also excellenta and overall I was very pleased. The food was tasty and nicely presented. I would thoroughly recommend it as it is located in a very central location and the whole experience was very acceptable.
